This week’s prompt is live water


I am sending in a bottle
waters that buoy my heart
the ebb tide of things resting
tributaries of thoughts parting

the wetlands of our wanting
puddles of joyful jumping
the shoals of dreams’ drift
the drumming of young rain

I label ball jars
with words vibrating
all the names for love
of alluvial silt
of old stones
webbed legs curious
for a new world

*Hado - chi: intrinsic vibrational patterns at the quantum level . Photonic ecstacy.
Consciousness influences the structure of water. Exquisite crystals emerge.

This poem was inspired by Maithri Goonetilleke, poet, healer, troubadour in scrubs.

I've seen that book about water crystals in water, and how positive or negative energy changes their shapes...absolutely fascinating. Your words were lovely!

Wow--very interesting that we both used Dr. Emoto's amazing work as the jump off place. Very different poems, but same essence.

Thank you for this--it is lovely and makes my heart sing. Really love the photo as well.

Many thanks--and thanks for visiting my site.

I'll be back, as the saying goes...

Poetry and Physics. You made it work. I always think that science has more poetry than one understands.

You did really good with this.

BTW, thanks for your email. I will put up your comments on my post, if you don't mind.

Hado is a new concept to me - vibrational patterns at the quantum level, photonic ecstasy. The middle verse incorporates water into our consciousness beautifully.

For me life is most amazing when you either look out to the stars or look inside the atom. Many years ago, as a chemistry student saw the electron, which was blue, and the spectrum of the hydrogen atom, which is more beautiful than the rainbow.

These words are magical. How we shape the very substance that shapes us is the essence of poetry, I think. Well done.

Oh, so joyful and lovely! I especially love the first two stanzas.

--- there may be a wondering in this poem, but I feel a longing to see behind the veils of what's blocking my mind.
